The Kingdom of God is like ...

Bishop Richard J. Sklba dishes it out to the dead in the "Herald of Hope" column in our Archdiocesan newspaper.
That Puritan culture possessed a clear sense of being chosen and free, of looking down on others as evidenced in the way they treated the Native American peoples. The embrace of God's grace was positive, but the sense of superiority was not. They possessed a strong sense of Protestant individualism, different from the communal nature of God's people found in Scripture and retained in the Catholic experience.

A good analysis, and could be read in tandem with "The Mangerial Revolution" of Burnham.
